Lung Cancer Is Deadly

Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States, claiming more lives each year than breast, ovarian, colon, and prostate cancers combined. According to the American Lung Association, lung cancer is responsible for roughly 25% of cancer-related deaths.

As many assume, smoking—both direct and secondhand—is a major cause of lung cancer. However, lung cancer is increasing among non-smokers, and exposure to asbestos and radon are the main causes of lung cancer among smokers and non-smokers alike.

Types of Lung Cancer

According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, three of the most common types of lung cancer include:

  • Non-small cell lung cancer
  • Small cell lung cancer
  • Mesothelioma

Non-small cell lung cancer is the most prevalent form of lung cancer. This type of cancer has several causes that may include smoking, exposure to dangerous chemicals, substances, or gases.


Once you or a loved one receives a cancer diagnosis, you will find out the stage of the cancer’s development. The stages are:


  • Stage I: This means that the cancer is in the lungs and has not entered the lymph nodes. It is often curable with surgery.
  • Stage II: Stage II lung cancer means the cancer is in the lungs and lymph nodes within the lungs. Stage II lung cancer may be treatable with a combination of surgery and chemotherapy.
  • Stage III: This stage typically means that the cancer is in the lungs, lymph nodes in the lungs, and lymph nodes in the chest. Some combination of surgery, chemotherapy, and likely other therapies will be necessary.
  • Stage IV: The most serious stage of lung cancer, stage IV, means that you are containing the cancer to prolong your life, rather than curing it.
